"According to the passage, which of the following was true of most villages in seventeenth-century England?

(A) The resident squire had significant authority.
(B) Church members were selected on the basis of their social status within the community.
(C) Low population density restricted agricultural and economic growth.
(D) There was little diversity in local institutions from one region to another.
(E) National events had little impact on local customs and administrative organization"

Dear experts,
from the last sentence of paragraph 1,especially the word "overstates", I got the idea that little diversity in local institution was directly imitative of another.
that's why I am satisfied with D.

please point out my fault.

thanks a lot
have a nice day

1) A
2) D
3) C
4) A
5) E

Question 2 seems to be the one most people struggled with, so I will address it in more detail.

2. It can be inferred from the passage that the author of the passage considers Allen's "discovery" (see highlighted text) to be
A. already known to earlier historians No. It can be inferred that Allen discovered the detail.
B. based on a logical fallacy This is unsubstantiated
C. improbable but nevertheless convincing Author seems adamant that Allen is wrong, so no.
D. an unexplained, isolated fact Yes. The gist of the paragraph is that Allen's work does little to advance "the big picture" and that his work cannot be used to explain "macro" trends.
E. a new, insightful observation Like C, the author seems to be against Allen's POV.

Hello Everyone,

Being a non native speaker, I didn't know the meaning of "paternalistic resident squires" - that's why in question 4 i crossed option A and chose option D (because of "overstate" word). Please tell me how to avoid suck mistakes in exam time so that I will get all right.

Thanks

Akash
